    Attempted murder charges against 9 in fatal attack

    This happened in my mother in laws development, and less than 1 mile from where we live! 5 years ago Alban Park was a quiet suburban neighborhood and now about a 3rd of the houses are rented to, and stuffed with, illegals. ... 174#183174

    The News Journal

    Nine people, including five teenagers, were charged Tuesday in a gang-related fight in Christiana Hundred that left one man dead and two people wounded.

    The dead man, who was shot in the head, was identified Tuesday as Juan Monjaraz-Garcia, 21, of the 600 block of Robinson Lane, in the area of Alban Park, where the shooting occurred.

    The other victims included a 24-year-old man who was stabbed in the abdomen and remained Tuesday at Christiana Hospital, and a 20-year-old man, shot in the right ankle, who was in stable condition.

    A fourth man told police he was shot at, but was not hit.

    Charged with two counts each of attempted murder, possession of a deadly weapon during a felony, possession of a firearm during a felony, committing a riot and conspiracy were:

    •Hugo Sanchez-Allende, 27, of the first block of Phyllis Drive, Ogletown.

    •Angel Flores, 21, of the 900 block of E. 26th St., Wilmington.

    •Fernando Tapia, 22, of the 2000 block of Newport Pike, near Newport.

    •Ivan Cabrerra-Mendez, 20, of Manor Park Apartments, near New Castle.

    •Gabriel Orozco Panjosa, 18, of Elsmere.

    •Leonardo Gomez, 17, of the first block of Filbert Ave., Elsmere.

    •Emigdio Vasquez, 16, of the first block of Stroud St., Wilmington.

    •Francisco Tellez-Castilla, 16, of the 100 block of Washington St., Wilmington.

    •Roberto Flores, 14, who lives with Angel Flores in Wilmington.

    The five teens were committed to the New Castle County Juvenile Detention Center in lieu of $163,000 bail each.

    The other four were jailed at the Young Correctional Institution after failing to post $163,000 bail each.

    No charge has been filed yet in the slaying. Hearings on the other charges have been set for Monday.

    "The murder is under active investigation by county police and the state Attorney General's Office," agency spokeswoman Janice Fitzsimons said.

    According to court records, officers were called to the 600 block of Homestead Road in Alban Park about 8 p.m. Sunday because people were fighting in the rear of an apartment there.

    By the time officers arrived, a white Honda and red Jeep Cherokee had already fled. Police put out a radio broadcast for the vehicles. The Jeep was stopped on Kirkwood Highway at the entrance to Farrand Village Apartments, and the Honda was stopped at Maryland Avenue and Du Pont Road. The 11 occupants of the vehicles were brought in for questioning.

    Witnesses told police that the two vehicles had pulled up in Alban Park, and nearly a dozen men armed with baseball bats and knives piled out. As they approached one now-hospitalized man, he ran toward the door of an apartment, at which point he was shot in the ankle, court records said.

    Witnesses said one attacker asked "What neighborhood are you from?" and made hand signs indicative of gang affiliation, police said.

    At that point, the man now hospitalized with a stabbing injury said, "We will fight you," police said.

    The attackers then chased the victims into a garage, and witnesses said they heard gunshots.

    County police declined to reveal the names of the rival gangs. But in court records, police said a white baseball cap with the word "Surenos" in purple was found in the Honda. Surenos is a known violent Mexican gang. Graffiti found in the Homestead Road garage where the shooting occurred is common to Mexican street gangs in Northern California, police also said in court records.
